Ahead of this past weekend’s three-day Labor Day Weekend “Dicks-pectacular” edition of Phish‘s archive concert webcast/cooking series Dinner and a Movie, the band announced that the weekly virtual events will shift to an “approximately once-a-month” schedule moving forward, with the next episode set to take place on Tuesday, September 29th.
On Wednesday, however, Phish informed fans they will push Episode 26 of Dinner and a Movie back to Wednesday, September 30th, in order to clear everyone’s schedules to watch the first Presidential debate, which falls on Tuesday the 29th.
Prior to the three-night Labor Day Weekend Dinner and a Movie triple feature, the series had continued each Tuesday night since March 24th with the exception of the postponed 11th installment in accordance with the music industry’s “Blackout Tuesday” movement in early June.
In addition to ceding the virtual stage to the debate on September 29th, Phish took the opportunity to announce a contest with HeadCount to encourage voter registration and participation. Much like the campaign hosted when HeadCount was the beneficiary for Dinner and a Movie Episode 19 in early August, the band is raffling off “A Year of Phish” to those who check their voter registration using the new platform. Prize includes a year’s supply of Ben & Jerry’s Phish Food, 2 tickets to any show in the year the band returns to the road, 1 year of LivePhish+ and LivePhish webcasts, and a poster signed by the band. The contest ends tomorrow, September 10th. Check your voter registration status and enter to win “A Year of Phish” here.
We’ll see you on the virtual lot on Wednesday, September 30th for the next episode of Dinner and a Movie. While you wait, you can read up on the first first 25 episodes of the series below:
